The editing was quite poor. Words were split for no obvious reason, and letters and numbers were occassionally interchanged. In re to substance, the author called Nixon a "world class poker player" but provided no evidence of it. Such an outlandish claim makes the reader wonder what else he pulled out of thin air. That said, I learned quite a bit about the campaign (and the time). At least I think I did.

Since I was 13 I heard about this senatorial campaign but never until now did I know how viciously fought it was. Nixon used a huge war chest to perfect the well known attack dog methods he had used in the late 40s. The atmosphere of fear created by McCarthy and other radical anti-communists was used artistically by Nixon to destroy Helen Douglas's congressional service and impugn her loyalty and that of her actor husband. Among the facts I didn't know was the use of anti-Semitic slurs by his campaign and the collusion of Nixon with NY congressman Marcantonio to smear her as a communist abettor. I was also surprised by the lack of support she received from President Truman and his administration.

Anyone interested in McCarthyism hysteria should add this book to his collection.

After Cano this bio was superficial and I worried about its accuracy. Ok for a non critical sentimental review of period

Good resource to understand this important political campaign which will be of special interest to Nixon supporters and women.
